I'm curious about the "barges" leaving from Post Office Square, Summer and Washington Street, Franklin and Washington Street. How did a boat reach these inland locations? And were there no bridges across Fort Point Channel in 1891?

Charles Swift

My guess is that the "barges" were like our present day parade "floats". I would assume that there would have been some sort of small rally downtown before heading to the game.

Great site! - Your 1891 map clearly shows Congress St bridge, but no Summer St. - 1899 map shows Summer St bridge. and that concurs with the 1899 on the bridge itself in real life--I am looking for info relating to the buildup of earth for Summer St itself. It appears that the 1891 map is showing railroads converging on a bridge that would later become Summer St. Any idea when Summer St was actually built?
